'Your Storytelling skills are on another level. Amazing!!'

Storytelling Shows

 

My shows can be 20 minutes to two hours. Whether it's a telling at a wedding for a select few or a public event for an audience 100+ I can create a story set to suit your event.

There's a folk tale for every event. Hear of the 'Apple Tree Man' as I lead your wassail as 'The Lady Of The Wassail'. Learn of Brigid and her connection to the seasons and wolves. Find out how the Saxons celebrated Easter with hares and egg hunts and discover the dark tales of that liminal space we know these days as Halloween. 

The tales I tell have been passed down through the generations, thanks to the oral tradition, for thousands of years. There is lore beneath our feet, in the woods and flowing through the rivers: stories of the South Downs.

With a hundred miles of National Park, rare habitats and endangered species, our relationship with the rolling downs  is one of stories. Stories of the farmers, stories of the barrows, stories of the wildlife and stories of the smugglers.

Travel with me across the channel and you can hear a tale or two from Straparola to the Grimm Brothers, in a storytelling evening for adults that takes a look at the people recording the tales of the oral storytelling tradition with dark fairytales of singing birds, cannibals and voices from the grave.

Want to hear her-story? Greek goddesses, Norse deities, the Celtic Cailleach and the goddesses, fae and sorceresses of the Mabinogion. I'll take you on a journey with the maiden, the mother and the crone, explore these archetypes, and the complex characters of divine women. 

Get in touch to find out how we can work together.
